You don't need crossfire for mining (but for gaming, though).

Confirming that the 6870 does 260 MHash/s with stock rates (m0mchil's miner, -v -w 128 -f 1)

>Good, however used computer farms can be cheap. I recommend considering FPGA based solutions.

You'll get above 500MH/s with HD5850s. I am using just a single XFX HD5850 (it plays games as well!) and I get just over 300MH/s average when the computer is running and left alone. There is a company in Florida with a couple of XFX HD5850 second hand on Amazon for around $190 each which is about equivalent to what I paid for a repack XFX HD5850 here in the UK.

Is anyone farming with an array of Playstations yet!???
